Quote of the Day

From The Screwtape Letters, C. S. Lewis’ brilliant satire:

Evangelicals have become great believers in their various systems, institutions and programs. It is a mark of the contemporary church that its illusions of external prosperity have almost completely blinded it to its poverty of actual spiritual power.

    Can you locate Lewis’s description or concept of “actual spiritual power”? That would be interesting. This goes to prove that great people of God throughout the centuries have had an issue with “Evangelicals” as we know them today.
